With Instagram becoming the go to place for beauty info, aesthetically interesting and pleasing brands have been popping up all over the place. One of the most popular is Milk Makeup, the NY and LA based brand with unconventional packaging and a product line to match. I was drawn to the stick formulas, and I thought I would do a quick review of each one I have. Let’s get started!
“A colorless, oil- and silicone-free primer to blur the look of imperfections on all skintones.”
This is the newest of the three, and the hardest to describe. The product actually feels like nothing on the skin, so much so that it can be easy to apply too much. I like to swipe this on the areas where I have visible pores and shine (nose, forehead, chin) after moisturizer and before foundation. I haven’t used this on top of foundation because I prefer a powder, but it is supposed to work just the same. This doesn’t clog my pores or break me out like some pore filling products can do.
“A soothing sea water and firming caffeine gel stick for an instant boost of moisture.”
I bought this for under my eyes. I have hereditary dark circles, and even when I get the rare 10 hours of sleep, they still look purple and sunken in. When I look for a daytime eye cream, I love anything with caffeine, because it de-puffs and soothes my under eyes, while also hydrating and cooling. I use this right before I apply my eye make up, and it makes everything apply smoothly and last all day.
“A bestselling holographic highlighter stick that’s packed with meteorite powder for an otherworldly glow.”
Milk was one of the first companies to release a holographic cream highlight, and it is was truly skyrocketed their popularity. This purple halo glow is stunning, eye-catching and different. The only downside is the formula can be a tiny bit greasy, so I don’t suggest putting it all over the face. Only on the tops of the cheekbones and maaaaybe the tip of the nose. They just recently released a more subtle shade of the holographic stick, so check that out here if these shade is a little too crazy for you!
